IMLS Shares Results of Studies on Library Services From Early in the Pandemic
IMLS released two resources from two studies on libraries and the COVID-19 pandemic: an infographic based on the FY2020 Public Libraries Survey and a research brief based on the State Library Administrative Agencies (SLAA) Survey.
The two-page infographic, How Public Libraries Adapted to Serve Their Communities at the Start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, “highlights strategies public libraries used to ensure patrons had access to library services as the pandemic forced closures in communities around the nation beginning in March 2020.”
The research brief, State Library Administrative Agency Adaptations in the Initial Months of the COVID-19 Pandemic and Ongoing Trends, “chronicles how SLAAs formed new partnerships with other government departments and agencies to provide services to libraries in their jurisdictions or members of the public during the onset of the pandemic. The brief also describes how SLAAs adapted to new restrictions related to on-site work.”
